The Salvation Army has embraced a new mission as part of its foundational commitment to “to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in his name without discrimination. To pre-discriminate against whites, and they created a study guide to do it.
‘Let’s Talk About Racism’ Starts out sounding as if it means to honestly treat the topic with balance.
Race is not biological. It is a social construct. There is no gene or cluster of genes common to all Blacks or all Whites. Were race ‘real’ in the genetic sense, racial classifications for individuals would remain constant across boundaries. Yet, a person who could be categorized as Black in the USA might be considered White in Brazil or colored in South Africa.
But it quickly devolves into predictable #woke garbage.
Individual racism: refers to the beliefs, attitudes, and actions of individuals that support or perpetuate racism in conscious and unconscious ways. The US cultural narrative about racism typically focuses on individual racism and fails to recognize systemic racism.
Institutional racism: occurs in an organization. These are discriminatory treatments, unfair policies, or biased practices based on race that result in inequitable outcomes for Whites over POC and extend considerably beyond prejudice.
While Racism is, according to the Salvation Army, not biological, the balance of the document focuses on injustices by whites against people of color. The word “White” appears 119 times, including whiteness, White Communities, White Americans, White Men, White Youth. There’s an entire section on what is whiteness.
“The subtle nature of racism is such that people who are not consciously racist easily function with the privileges, empowerment, and benefits of the dominant ethnicity, thus unintentionally perpetuating injustice.”

Don’t get me wrong, Racism is real, and it’s a problem. But not as big a problem as governments and corporations leveraging it for influence and power to create the worst sort of discrimination of all. The despotism of an elite that systemically denies everyone, regardless of color, outside its ruling class, not just opportunities but the natural rights with which we are all born.
The Salvation Army’s new mission is to teach the culturally disruptive Marxist Narrative that leads to a tyranny of the elite.
